Hundreds gathered on a cool, drizzly Saturday on Lake Street to stand against a planned Nazi protest of an anti-racism workshop conducted at the Midtown YWCA.
A dozen people, including aggrieved worker Francisco Domingo Sanchez and allies, marched chanting “justice” and bearing signs on Nicollet Avenue to protest Peninsula Malaysian Restaurant at 1pm on August 27.
From Mostly Everything
Last Thursday (25), a red rally gathered around the Statehouse with a microphone. Wanting to continue the noise, this morning (29) citizens of Arawak City passed out yellow fliers reading "Where are the Libraries?" and "Missing: 227.3 Million Dollars in Library Funding." Good weather and free books marked the founding of the People's Library of Arawak City. Organizers encouraged the visitors to explore their new space. The result: readers lounging in the green grass, readers walking along the paved paths, and readers enjoying the air conditioning on the tile floor of the Statehouse Rotunda. Local media sources came to witness; passers-by asked questions. The only negative opinion of the new library came from a grounds keeper, who complained about the many bikes locked-up on the public benches. (The vote on the State budget has been delayed for another week.)
